Neutralise Paint Fumes With An Onion

Neutralise Paint Fumes With An Onion

After painting a room of your house, you might struggle to get rid of the unpleasant fumes. Not to worry! As the Huffington Post points out, you just need to cut up an onion.

After you’re done painting, cut an onion in half. Then, place each piece at the ends of the room. This should absorb the odor and the site says your space won’t smell oniony either. If you’re not using a brand of low VOC paints, which tend to only give off a slight smell, this is a great tip to help keep the stench out of the room.

That’s a clever tip. Now you just have to make sure you don’t cry when cutting it.
